Their first fundraiser will be a Table Quiz in Nellie’s on May 5 at 9pm. Tables of 4 will be €20 with cash prizes for the winners. There will also be a raffle with spot prizes on the night. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
Galtee Rovers - St. Pecaun’s
One of the highlights of last week was the display of our minor hurlers who defeated Cappawhite, 2-7 to 0-8, in round one of the West minor B hurling competition. It’s a while since our minor hurlers made an impression but the omens are promising for John Paul McCarthy and his backroom team who bring lots of experience to the Job. We can expect a couple more games at this level before the exams kick in.
All promoters and supporters are reminded that the April draw will be held on Saturday night while anybody interested in the County Draw should contact a committee member as soon as possible.
